Fees: Medicaid and most insurances pay a portion or all of the fee. Please check your health insurance for outpatient mental health benefits. Assessment and counselling fees can be based on a sliding scale, determined by annual household income and the number of persons in the household for Geauga County residents.
Many of us find challenges that come up in our lives that we need help talking out. These can be relationship problems, struggles with children, challenges with our teens or sometimes help in finding the right course of direction to follow on some difficult issues. For others, coping with a serious physical or mental illness or chronic problem is something which counseling can provide relief. Talking with a trained professional can be a tool, which many people use to assist in healing deep hurts and developing healthy coping strategies.
The first step is to contact the office for an assessment appointment. We will send a packet of information out to you to complete before your first appointment. The office staff will schedule the appointment, review your counseling fee, and answer any questions you might have about the first session.
At the first session, your therapist will gather information from you about your concerns and ask questions to help better understand your background. This will include questions about your general health, family relationships, and growing up experiences.
The purpose of working with a counselor is to help you gain a better understanding of the challenges you are facing and developing some positive strategies to address them.
